A Senior art director with over 10 years experience within the creative, fashion and lifestyle industries. Gaining industry recognition for my leadership skills, I have directed and inspired a full service advertising team whilst establishing a strong reputation for visionary, concept driven design. A key figure in actively securing new clients to establish a reputable and diverse portfolio, as well as maintaining long term creative partnerships with international brands. A creative and technically skilled individual seeking an exciting and challenging opportunity in a directorial role.
In the 10 years I have spent working at the award-winning agency Aboud Creative I have forged an accomplished career, achieving the Senior Art Director role, managing a junior/middleweight design team. My experience has been both widely creative and technically diverse, designing and art directing; advertising campaigns, books, corporate identities, packaging, web, exhibitions and presentations. Clients have included Paul Smith, Zara, Boden, River Island, Thomas Pink, Neal’s Yard Remedies, Design Museum, V&A and Rizzoli.
Following university I spent 3 months in New York City working as a Junior Designer in two design studios. At Hello I worked on my first branding pitch, successfully designing the winning logo design for start up fashion company Trunkt. At Yard I got my first taste for fashion advertising working with clients including Gap, John Varvados and Target on projects from pitch to final advertising layouts.
